Westgate Mall had been open almost 6 years when United Artists acquired the former Hub Clothiers/later Moning’s Department Store space and converted it to a state of the art 6 screen theater opening May 25, 1988. I saw “CROCODILE DUNDEE 2” that day. The auditoriums were considerably larger and nicer than the “shoebox” UA-6 a couple miles east on I-40. The Westgate 6 converted to a second run dollar theater when UA opened their Amarillo Star 14 all-stadium seating Theater across the freeway in 1998. UA decided not to keep the theater and it was closed for a time in the early 2000s. Premier Cinema took over the location reopening the theater as a second run discount venue in the spring of 2004. Some recent remodeling has improved the theater quite a bit.

I practically grew up there. It was THE theater to go to back in the day. It’s now been turned into a rundown discount theater with a horrible sound system. Saw many great films here including Batman, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Ghost, Beauty and the Beast, Mrs. Doubtfire, Forrest Gump, Independence Day and Twister to name a few.

A rather standard, 80’s era, mall multiplex. At one time it was the “latest and greatest” (along with the mall), driving older competition under. Then, after trends changed towards the megaplex (of which Amarillo currently has two), the Westgate was forced in to becomming a second run theatre.
